Stunning. Packed from wall-to-wall with the shortest pop songs to chart in the '80s (along with some b-sides that seem to be thrown in for good measure - I can't argue with "Dad I'm In Jail," or the old "Short of the Week" segments from the Boogiemonster's past.
Refreshing to hear the Georgia Satellites' take on the Swinging Blue Jeans' "Hippy Hippy Shake," which still seems to hold its own after all these years. I also wasn't aware of Prince's "Alphabet Street" as a single 'edit' version. Stellar inclusion. A solid show, highly recommended for those with a short attention span, yet with two hours to kill.
